New MINOX DTC 400 SLIM Wildlife Camera
Sets New Standards for Concealment

The new MINOX DTC 400 SLIM Wildlife Camera lives up to its name, being so flat it sets new standards for increased concealment and inconspicuous monitoring.
The SLIM’s extremely flat body is only about one inch thick and is slightly curved so it fits every tree trunk neatly and snugly. Combined with its camouflage housing, the result is the unobtrusive presence you want and need in an effective trail camera.

Hunting hogs with Thermal imaging

Is there anything more fun that hog hunting at night with suppressed ARs and Thermal imaging?

For this hunt I ran a Wilson Combat 6.8 with 100g Hornady GMX Boar Buster ammo. Silencer is a CRUX Nemesis 30. Thermal scope is a FLIR PS64 and video recording is being handled by a MDVR from Ultimate Night Vision.

Game Warden Field Notes

TPWD News Release — April 15, 2015.  The following items are compiled from recent Texas Parks and Wildlife Department law enforcement reports.

  • All Play and No Work.  Near the end of duck season, a Henderson County game warden received a call from the owner of a local gas station. The caller said a black car had pulled up to one of their dumpsters and left a trash bag full of ducks inside. When the warden arrived at the gas station, he saw footage from the station’s cameras that showed the individual entering the gas station and paying for several items using a “speed pass.” The warden tracked down the individual using information secured from a warrant for the speed pass user’s credentials. The out-of-state hunter admitted to dumping the ducks in the dumpster because he did not want to clean them. Continue reading Game Warden Field Notes

Ruger American Ranch Compact rifle in 300 Blackout

We got the Ruger American Ranch Compact in 300 Blackout back in the fall.  It was exactly what I was looking for.  A lightweight 300 Blackout youth model with a 16″ threaded barrel.   We got it, mounted a Leupold VXR 2-7 on it and sighted it in with some Barnes 110g ammo.  Running a Templar Tactical Nemesis30 can on it.  Right of the box it was shooting 1/2″ groups. Very nice.

We hunted with it and it took care of a few deer for my boys.  It’s a cool little gun, very lightweight and even dad might enjoy it as a truck gun our out walking around!
